I called last minute, Friday afternoon before New Year's and asked if my little dog and I could stay from that night through Jan 1, a Tuesday. Ashley and Glen were VERY accommodating to us. We had a cottage that happened to be a little more space than we needed, but it was beautifully decorated, with all the amenities of home, but a much more comfortable bed than mine.... and more! The cottage was charming and set apart from the main house, across from the horse stables. Picturesque! The food was top notch, very creatively put together and always more if desired. The hosts' attention to detail, from the decor, to the sheets of paper available with local restaurants and attractions, to printing out the best route to get to Lancaster, made my stay very pleasant. I felt "at home." I look forward to many happy returns.

Room Tip: I was off the beaten path. Although it snowed a bit, I wasn't put off, but if weather could be...

My husband & I just returned from a short stay (next time we have to plan better!) at this beautiful inn. The Christmas decorations were breathtaking, and the overall ambience of the main rooms was both elegant yet cozy.
Our breakfast this morning was easily one of the best we have had the pleasure of eating at the many B&B's we have stayed in over the years. The fresh waffles, served with warm, bourbon-pecan syrup, were out-of-this-world!!
If you're thinking of visiting this lovely area in PA, the Hamanassett would be a perfect choice!

My GF and I just returned from an amazing weekend in the Brandywine Valley. We stayed at Hamanassett and loved it! Ashley and Glenn are outstanding innkeepers. We were lucky to get a room. Sandy had resulted in cancellations and when the opportunity to stay there came up we booked it. Ashley even upgraded our room gratis! The bed and house were so comfortable and breakfast was delicious. It started with a warm pear with almond slices and the most yummy sauce. If you have never been to Longwood Gardens at Christmas time then you are missing something special. The next day we went to Brandywine River Museum and were blown away by three generations of Wyeths. We will be back next year!

This was our second visit to Hamanassett. We loved the Inverness Room on our first visit, but if you want more privacy the Meadow Cottage is a splendid choice. We relaxed on the front porch of our own cottage watchng horses and a pony play in the evening, enjoyed a cup of tea in a tea cup from the well appointed kitchen, played games and watched a movie from the large collection provided by the inn keepers and relaxed. Most importantly we and our dog were welcomed, well fed and provided assistance when needed. Wished we had stayed longer.

Room Tip: This property is private and quiet, any room is a good one, but if you want privacy choose a cottage...

My wife and I spent last Thanksgiving weekend 2011 in the carriage house with my parents. We all had such a nice time in the little house on the property that we returned this year too! The large spacious kitchen allowed us to cook a full Thanksgiving meal with all of the trimmings and a wonderful dining room with which to enjoy it. We had breakfast in the dining room each morning before visiting Winterthur and then Hagley House the next two days--both wonderful experiences which we all thoroughly enjoyed. Our hosts Glenn and Ashley couldn't have been more helpful. Corrine and Kelly were also terrific. All in all another great holiday in a relaxing environment!

Room Tip: We chose the carriage house which afforded us our own little home to come and go as we pleased. Our...

We arrived worn out and overdue for a vacation. Within 2 days of good rest, excellent breakfasts and lengthy visits to Longwood Gardens and Winterthur, we were almost ourselves. Glen and Ashley and the kind, friendly and attentive staff, encouraged us to enjoy the beautiful parks in Brandywine Valley and to eat well at a variety of restaurants from upscale to just plain good food. We decided to extend our stay from 4 days to 7 as our body clocks slowed to a comfortable pace. Do we recommend Hananassett? Well, we look forward to spending more time there! Did we mention the beautiful sunlit indoor porch, a great place to read. And the pastoral scenery right out the front door? And the sweet horses grazing in the field? Beautiful. The soul can breathe at Hamanassett!

Wonderful mini-vacation while staying at the Hamanssett B&B. Ashley and Glenn provide beautiful surroundings, delicious food, and great conversation. *A must stay! They were very helpful in suggesting places to see and provided excellent driving directions.
